    Default QAD or ripcord

    has anyone ever had problems with the ripcord or QAD with the fletchings hitting the top bar? i am wondering it just seems like it would hit it.

    I had two buddies who both got rid of there Ripcords, They had a problem with them staying up every once in a while, vines dont sneek through all that well.

    I got ten thousand shots through mine and haven't had no problem, I ve just replaced my cord.

    As far as the top bar, I took it off the first day I had it
    It's a lot easyier to load a arrow with it off,

    From what we have seen, it depends on the brace height of the bow. If your bow has a good amount of brace height then no problems.

    Drop Zones are nice to look at the problems start after you attach them to your bow.

    never had one probilm with ant drop zone I have used. Had trouble with the TT one my spot bow. Bounce and hit the vanes. Most people put paddind under where the make contact with the sheilf to make the queit. That makes them bouce more. I took it off and that fixed it.

    Hey you hijacker we were not talking about the DZ or TT. It is Ripcord or QAD.

    Just explaining about bounce. Look for it in the reason for issues with the rest.
    Some want to think speed and it is not always speed but bounce, the more force you add the more it will bounce back up.

    Who shoots upside down any way? I am lost I am backing out of this one. Just over look me. This makes no sence to me. Explain why you would ever need to shoot upside down in the first place. Then we can talk. Get a WB

    I sometimes sit while hunting and lay my bow on my lap while doing other things with my hands. So the WB or others make it easier to keep the arrow on the rest. Just my .02
